John Kerry: Jihadists Need “More Economic Opportunities”…

Weaponized cluelessness.

Via CNS News:

    Launching a new global counter-terror fund, Secretary of State John Kerry spoke of the importance of “providing more economic opportunities for marginalized youth at risk of recruitment” – although much research has debunked the notion of a link between poverty and Islamist terrorism.

    At a meeting in New York Friday of the Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF), Kerry and his Turkish counterpart Ahmet Davutoglu unveiled a $200 million initiative designed to leverage public and private funding in support of what the GCTF calls “countering violent extremism” (CVE) efforts.

    The aim of the first-of-its-kind fund, known formally as the “Global Fund for Community Engagement and Resilience,” is to support local communities and organizations to counter extremist ideology and promote tolerance.

Perhaps Kerry would consider establishing a fund to assist the unfortunate jihadis in learning how to seduce and marry wealthy heiresses.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

It's not "I wish I was Rich” the jihadist yell as they blow themselves up. Economics has zilch, zero, nada influence on jihadist recruits.

Liberals never want to help others with their own money, they always want to do it with your money and my money.  Remember, Lurch licensed his sailboat in Connecticut so he wouldn't have to pay Massachusetts taxes? :bolt:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

Of course. But it is now considered politically incorrect or déclassé for public figures to attribute their motivation to radical Islam.

Actually, it was Rhode Island, but point taken.

...and we need an SOS that isn't delusional.

We all have needs.
